Smile to Ride


Smile to Ride

We're offering free rides on the iconic Centennial Wheel to guests who flash their smiles on Monday, Feb. 28.

The lifting of COVID-19 mandates is definitely a reason to smile! 

Guests who flash their smiles on February 28 will get to ride the iconic Centennial Wheel for free. Each participating guest will also receive a free souvenir photo of their smiling face, provided by Photogenic Inc. Those happy faces will then be displayed on the Centennial Wheel in March. 

Guests will be required to sign a photo release granting Navy Pier permission to use their photo on the center hub of the Centennial Wheel and other screens at Navy Pier.

Offer valid 11am to 7pm on February 28. This event is walk-up only; tickets are not available. 

Navy Pier has strictly adhered to the City’s COVID-19 safety mandates and will continue to do so should the need arise.
